    (I deleted the other thread asking specific questions about S5200)

    I'm in the market for a new camera. I'd like it to have a large optical zoom (7x or higher), digical would be nice, too, but that's not high on the list, image stabilization...that's about it. I'm not going to use an external flash. I doubt I'll ever want/need a replaceable lens. I'm mostly going to use it for pictures of kids, family, etc but I'd like it to also take a decent picture at a volleyball match (indoors, "ok" lighting, no flash allowed, ball moving fairly quick) or a soccer match (outdoors, running, ball moving fast here too) and I'd like to keep it under $300.

    I've been reading here
    and here
    http://www.steves-digicams.com/ (specifically this "best cameras" list, link)

    and think I may have it narrowed down to (not in any order)

    Sony DSC-H1
    Minolta DiMAGE 7i
    Fujifilm S5200
    Panasonic DMC-FZ7

    Any tips? Any other suggestions? Anything I should avoid?
